NVIDIA Captures Three Major Computex 2016 Awards

TAIPEI,  May 31, 2016NVIDIA won big at the Computex 2016 Best Choice Awards, with the NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU and NVIDIA Jetson TX1 module hauling in Gold Awards and the NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV clinching a Category Award.

Garnering these three prestigious awards extends the company’s winning streak — the longest of any international Computex exhibitor — to eight consecutive years. Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen will hand out the awards.

Nearly 375 technology products from more than 140 vendors vied for the Best Choice Awards at Computex 2016, the largest technology tradeshow in Asia and second largest in the world. The Best Choice Awards, established in 2002, honour innovation, functionality and market potential.

The Gold Award-winning NVIDIA Tesla M40 GPU is the world’s fastest deep learning training accelerator. Purpose-built to dramatically reduce training time, the Tesla M40 can crank through deep learning models within hours versus days on CPU-based compute systems.

The NVIDIA Jetson TX1, the other Gold Award winner, is the world’s most advanced system for embedded visual computing. A supercomputer on a module that’s the size of a credit card, it offers embedded computing developers the highest performance, latest technology and the best development platform.

Winner of the Digital Entertainment & AR/VR Application Category Award, NVIDIA SHIELD transforms the living room entertainment experience with 4K streaming, advanced gaming and Android TV. It also comes with GeForce NOW, the only game-streaming service that delivers GeForce GTX gaming to the TV instantly.

Android 6.0 Marshmallow & New Games For NVIDIA SHIELD

Written by Chris Daniel, NVIDIA

Android 6.0 Marshmallow, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and new content are descending onto NVIDIA SHIELD Android TV. This week at CES 2016, in Las Vegas, we’re announcing new automotive and virtual reality technologies and partnerships. SHIELD continues to evolve, too, with a slew of new features, games and apps.

 

New NVIDIA SHIELD Upgrades

We’ve made a commitment to supporting the NVIDIA SHIELD family with frequent, meaningful software upgrades. We’re continuing to honor that pledge as Android 6.0 Marshmallow heads to SHIELD Android TV.

Among the biggest enhancements Marshmallow brings is Adoptable Storage, which helps you super-size your storage capabilities. When adding an SD card, USB drive or external hard drive, SHIELD Android TV can recognize the new storage as internal memory.

We’re also enhancing the startup process. So there are even fewer steps you need to take before launching your favorite apps, movies, music and games.

Additionally, recent updates allow SHIELD Android TV owners to take control of the Recommendation Row and edit the apps that can push suggested content. They can also re-order apps and games in the download section — or allow them to appear in most recent order in which you’ve used them.

We’ll continue to support SHIELD with industry-leading software upgrades.

 

New NVIDIA SHIELD Games

Konami’s acclaimed video game Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is coming to SHIELD; pushing the boundaries of graphics, style and lightning-speed gameplay on a media streaming device.

Starting this Thursday, Jan. 7, you can control the hero, Raiden, a former child soldier transformed into a half-man, half-machine cyborg ninja with a soul fueled by revenge.

A fantastic story set in the Metal Gear universe complements the hit game’s non-stop action. With cyborg technology now the norm, you’ll battle rival private military companies to subdue the war economy, stabilize regions, save lives and gain peace, all while leading a path for Raiden to resolve his troublesome past.

 

New NVIDIA Shield Apps

[adrotate banner=”4″]The Android TV ecosystem has blossomed since SHIELD Android TV launched last May, and recent additions to the app family further establish SHIELD as one of the leaders in the media streaming category.

UltraFlix, the world’s largest library of 4K content, is a streaming network that enables subscribers to choose from over 600 hours of pristine 4K Ultra HD video on demand. It joins a growing stable of media apps, including HBO NOW, HBO GO, Showtime and Twitch, among countless others.

There’s an infinite amount of content available at a moment’s notice and SHIELD continues to deliver it best at the highest resolutions.

And what better time than during CES to pass along an update.
